SGO social workers

SGO social workers are based in the adoption and SGO team. They are responsible for reviewing SGO support plans and delivering/negotiating SGO support packages.

St Helens is responsible for delivering and reviewing support to children subject to SGO and their carers who reside in the authority. For families who do not reside in the authority, St Helens as the assessing authority will be responsible for delivering support for the first three years following the making of the SGO and then responsibility will fall to the family's home authority.

The adoption and SGO team can be contacted on 01744 671869.
